Clervaux is a really small village in the hills of northern Luxembourg. Apart from the chateau, there is not much too see, although if you like quiet villages and nature it is quite a nice place. The largest attraction, the photo exhibition The family of man, is currently closed for renovation. There is some information on http://www.tourisme-clervaux.lu/ .

There are regular trains to Luxembourg-city, taking 50 minutes and costing 1.50 euro. Vianden (reachable by bus from Ettelbruck) is another destination to be recommended.

Thanks for your reply. Drove through Clervaux 2 yrs ago when slowly touring back north from Remich towards the ferry ports. Just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing anything local, and you have confirmed that for me. I will be very happy seeing the glorious autumn colours around the Ardennes (4th time) and enjoying the gourmet breaks I've booked. Cheers.

I am researching my family tree and plan to visit various cities in Luxembourg in November, 2014. The family names include Zacharias, Grotz, Hinderscheid, Metz and Molitar. Towns/cities include Kautenbach, Wiltz, Clervaux, Selscheid & Munshausen.

I'd appreciate any suggestions as to best to find records, etc.

Thank you!

Hi,

Maybe you can join forces tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g190340-i789-k67…

Note: Kautenbach is administrated by - Kiischpelt - and Selscheid is with - Eschweiler - . Molitar spelling (Molitor ?)

The old church and town council records have been transferred to the National Archives.

I know that OP is quite old, but since this thread has been reactivated recently, I wish to point out that the (fantastic) photo exhibition "The Family of man" is now back after extensive renovations.
